Vintage Australian Print Ads

Vintage print ads sourced from Australian magazines and newspapers. The ads themselves sometimes originate from the US or UK, though. And yes, Australia used to use pounds (prior to 1966). The ads range from the 1930s to early 1990s, with my intention being to only upload ads that are at least 30 years old. The Women's Weekly ads come from the National Library of Australia website, The Age ads come from Newspapers.com, the rest of the ads are from my own growing collection of magazines.

From the 12 March 1952 edition of Australian Women's Weekly. Wow, I've uploaded over 4000 ads to this collection so far but less than 20 of them are for cigarettes. Seems tobacco companies took out very few full-page ads in Australian magazines during the late-40s/early-50s. Yay, I guess?
